As of right now it looks like things might be a little later if they even evolve on our beaches as far as the fall striper run goes. Water temps are still warm in NY and NJ and they are still saying "anyday, anyday now" everyday pushing the waves of migratory fish further away for us on the calendar. Just as a fall teaser I was wondering what is the normal duration that stripers hang out on the NJ beaches before they reach us. For instance just say they see them in mid NJ next week, will they most likely hang out there for a specific number of weeks or is it dictated completely on water temp? Bait movement also plays a factor but for the most part that is temp driven as well. What are your predictions for the first couple fish of the fall in the AI area? begining of Nov, Mid, or we won't see them until the last week or so of Nov carrying into Dec. Just bored at work and looking to drum up conversation.....
